For Della Tsang, Shadow Falls isn’t just a camp: it’s home. As a vampire who’s never fit in with her human family, it’s the one place she can truly be herself. But when a mysterious new guy arrives at camp, Della’s whole world is thrown into turmoil. Chase is a vampire with secrets, who knows more than he’s telling. But the more time she spends with him, the more she begins to trust this attractive stranger—and feel drawn to him. But romance is the last thing she wants—as she keeps telling Steve, the hunky shapeshifter who won’t stop trying to win her heart. And if Della isn’t careful, he just might succeed. When a new case puts everyone she cares about in danger, Della’s determined to do everything she can to save them . . . even if it means teaming up with Steve and Chase, who leave her more confused than ever. With their lives on the line, will Della and her friends survive—with their hearts intact?
Reborn was my first taste of C.C Hunters writing. I was definitely drawn in from the first page and could read this book for hours. I fell in love with all of the characters right off the bat and the way the book was written allowed me to put myself in Della’s shoes. This book is a great representation of a young adult novel because of the teenage side of Della that was brought into play on this story without being overly cheesy. In addition, there was a great voice in this story, it made for such a fun read to be able to hear all of Della’s snarky thoughts and really experience the book as if you were her.
The only major problem I have with this book was the absence of some details that you would probably find in previous books from the Shadow Falls series that are necessary to fill in some gaps in the storyline. That way, if this is your introduction to the Shadow Falls world (like it was for me), the book would make more sense.
That being said, I loved the progression of the book and I didn’t feel like there were any filler parts to this novel. Everything that was in the book was there for a purpose. From the first page you knew something was up with Della and you just felt a climax building up throughout the book. And let me tell you C.C. Hunter did not disappoint! This book was tied together flawlessly with no major holes being left open. There is minor cliff hanger that the end that definitely leaves the reader craving more!
This was a great introduction the series and I’m excited to see where these books go!
